1 Year Ago Today...

I can't believe it's only been a year since we poured the footings. Here's a walk down memory lane, with my post from June 21, 2006...

The drainfield is built, inspected & approved! In the background you can just make out the house site. It's fair distance away, down what little slope we have on the property. The soil here is almost totally clay, so drainage can really be a problem. It took quite a while just to find a place on the property that was suitably percable to get a septic permit. But now here it is! Wonderful.



The septic tank itself is just off the southwest corner of the house. The excavator also dug out the foundation area, and the concrete guys got right in there and poured the footings, as you can see. These guys aren't wasting any time! In the background you can see the tank & drainfield.



Wow. I get all excited again (just like I was last summer) looking at these old pictures. We've come a loooooooong way!

Congratulations! I'm still so impressed by what you and Cary have accomplished in this last year. You're an inspiration for me to get my butt in gear and do something spectacular...maybe this winter...:)

PS- new blog is up and running! Although that is less than spectacular.
